Lube all the front end fittings, this will be the tie rod ends and the upper and lower ball joints, that is it for the grease joints, on the hinges of the hood and doors use ordinary motor oil and lube the pivot pins, use a white lithium grease on the hood latch parts, that is what we do at the dealer during a LOF (lube and oil filter)

Where is a diagram for grease /lube under chassis locations

under-body only.check
my guess not gear lube. right>? axles/gear boxes, (a plenty)
2wd, or 4wd?
what do you want to grease, you never said.
bearings, tie-rods, ujoints etc. only>?

are you asking for ZERKS? only?
or all places on car with grease.?
are you saying just grease? and only things that must not be removed for service with grease, (like wheel bearings and splines)

The free book posted over 200 times.
chapter 0, read that? lube/maintenance?
see the 4wd exceptions?
my 2010 has none.

the map includes LUBE points.
but adds gear boxes,axle gears, GL4 and GL5 (gear lube) is lube. too
but engine oil is not lube, to 1996 books.

1993.(oldest for GC) the word LUBE is wide reaching...
i love the NUT typo.
my guess is you meant grease only
and with no disassemlbly

We took our car in we bought a tire and had it mounted we also had the oil changed and a lube job.

Modern cars don't really have grease fittings anymore.
If the car was an older car it might have had some.

How to chassis lube a 2010 chevy malibu

You are not taking a boot off the grease fitting. The little rubber boot you're removing is the dust boot for the bleeder valve on the brake caliper. The 2010 Chevy Malibu,as with most cars, have non-serviceable suspension parts.

Does my newly purchased 1998 Chevy Cavalier require a regular chassis lube. If so how frequently.

The chassis on that car should be of the sealed variety. The only way to know for sure is to look for grease zerks in the typical ball joint or tie rod area.

This is for 2coolrick

In the engine: 10w30 or 10w40 if you live in a desert area with mild winters. And for zert fitting type lube points, I'd use a premium grade grease chassis lubricant.
